I'll explain because its such a low score compared to others. Our bottle gushed when opening, had the intense aroma of burning plastic, and was quite painful to drink. It actually burned the back of my throat going down. Not sure what was going on with this bottle, but I'm sure this one doesn't represent this beer well. I will try another if I happen to get the chance.

I will start this out by saying i do love me a spicy stout. and i love all the new and great ones coming out. give me a mexican cake, hunah, prairie bomb, abraxas any day of the week. I wasn't thinking this would be in that same category, but i thought it would hold it's own.

It looked great, rich, dark and full. Smelled.. well HOT and cinnamon, and not the good kind of cinnamon... it was all downhill from there. did this at a tasting last night w/8 other ppl and every single one of us except for 1 guy dumped this. (he was RAVING about it btw). Just overpowering and overwhelming cinnamon and spice. it was so strong we all had to switch glasses for our next beer because we couldnt wash the smell out.

if it comes my way again, i'll pass and so should you

Snappy caramel head rises as falls almost just as fast. Black brew is thin and viscous.

Tons of cinnamon, heavy pepper aroma, milky chocolate

A nearly amazing complexity of deep, dark spice. Spicy, roasty, dark chocolate on the back end, crisp light carbonation, missing much sweetness with a overwhelming amount of cinnamon. Thin, watery, hot, awkward aftertaste.

This is one bizarrely unique brew. A very slow drinker. Difficult to drink and rate. It's a great pepper brew, but a poor stout. I don't know how I feel about MCS... $12/22oz

Thin, poor head, and over spiced. In the regular (non-tasting size) it is near impossible to finish. The spicing becomes stronger to the point of overpowering. Would not recommend in a large size.

This is not the recipe they opened with (in about 2011), and has lost all the original subtlety. The mouthfeel has improved since they changed the recipe.
